As you grow up, you learn many lessons from the adults around you, soaking in every gesture, word, and action. As a child, you strive to be your parents, or better yet, your older sister. I am the youngest of four. I have two older brothers, and an older sister, all of them have influenced my life and given me the motivation to work harder to be the students, leaders, and good people that they are today. However, growing up in a big household can bring confusion to who you truly are. Over the years, you fight for attention (or with each other), and it is easy to lose who you are along the way. Within myself, I have found someone with leadership qualities, perseverance, personality, and good-citizenship. Over the many years these activities have been a part of it, music and dance have influenced my life in a positive way. Both type of arts are very demanding. They require long hours of practice a day, which teaches you a lot of about perseverance, and time management. Music and dance have also given me opportunities for community service. The Orange County Ballet Theatre puts on The Nutcracker every December. After it ends, we dance for three separate nursing homes, which is always a pleasure for the residents. The Advanced Dance Company at NFA does community events as well including, two separate trips to Fostertown to dance and help out with the younger elementary students and hosting a dance benefit to raise money for a young girl with medical problems. In addition to this, I altar serve at my church on Sundays, teach oboe lessons at GAMS, and have attended two separate science fairs for volunteer work. I am currently Vice President of Wind Ensemble, and plan to be president of Music Council next year, as well as a senator for the Senior Class. Being a part of an honor society is not only about being a good citizen and giving back to your community, but also being a leader in everything you do. National Honors Society will give me more motivation to earn

    Scholarship, leadership, service, and character and all words that have a significant weight on me. These words are the foundation of everything I need in order to succeed in life.

Doing my part in servicing my community and the people around me will lead to a lifetime of happiness and blessings.

    Recently I was asked to join the Honor Society. At the beginning I was skeptical because I had no clue what it was or its use. But then I had my mom explain it to me. Honor Society will help me get into a good college and expand my knowledge. But to join this group, I had to think ‘Am I ready for this commitment? Am I going to be able to sustain the required GPA?’ After some thought, I decided, I am ready and able.

    First of all, it is a great honor to even be nominated for NHS. When I got the letter saying I was nominated, I felt a little relieved. I felt relieve because this is it. This is why I’ve worked so hard in school; this is why I spend countless hours doing homework. I realized that all of my hard work is finally paying off. I could help the NHS by dedicating my own time to participate in fundraisers, encouraging other students to do their best on their schoolwork, and try their best in everything that they do.…
